ChargedCurrent NeutrinoNucleus Scattering off the Even Molybdenum Isotopes
Abstract
Neutrinos from supernovae constitute important probes of both the currently unknown supernova mechanisms and of neutrino properties. Reliable information about the nuclear responses to supernova neutrinos is therefore crucial. In this work, we compute the cross sections for the chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus scattering off the eveneven molybdenum isotopes. The nuclear responses to supernova neutrinos are subsequently calculated by folding the cross sections with a FermiDirac distribution.
1. Introduction
Studies of neutrinonucleus interactions with neutrinos of low and intermediate incoming energies (i.e., neutrino energies in the range up to a few hundred MeV) are of great importance for the disentanglement of various unresolved questions in astrophysics, particle physics, and nuclear physics [1, 2]. Supernovae (type II) constitute the inevitable deaths of very massive stars initiated by the collapse of their iron cores. For the details of supernova physics, see for example, [3–5]. In a supernova event, about 99% of the explosion energy is emitted as neutrinos of all flavors. A future detection of neutrinos from a coming supernova would therefore provide a wealth of valuable information both on the currently unknown supernova mechanisms and the associated nucleosynthesis of heavy elements. A highstatistics observation of the neutrino signal from the next nearby supernova could in addition provide important information on unknown neutrino properties (see e.g., [6]). It has for example, been shown by simulations [7] that the signal produced by supernova neutrinos in a largescale detector such as the IceCube [8] probably could be used to disentangle the important question of normalorinverted neutrinomass hierarchy. As has been proposed by Volpe [9, 10], chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus scattering with neutrinos from lowenergy neutrino beams could in the future be exploited for spectroscopy of the virtual states involved in neutrinoless doublebeta decay (see e.g., [11]) and consequently constrain theoretical predictions for the associated nuclear matrix elements.
Neutrinos from astrophysical sources can be detected by Earthbound detectors by using chargedcurrent and/or neutralcurrent interactions in nuclei [12]. For a recent review on experimental methods for detection of supernova neutrinos, see [13]. One planned possibility for measurements of astrophysical neutrinos (solar and supernova neutrinos) is the MOON (Mo Observatory Of Neutrinos) experiment [14].
In this paper, we perform theoretical calculations of the cross sections for the chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus scattering off the stable eveneven molybdenum isotopes for neutrino energies, which are relevant for supernova neutrinos. We also present results for the averaged cross sections obtained by folding the cross sections with a FermiDirac distribution. The calculations are based on the general theory for the treatment of semileptonic processes in nuclei, which was first introduced by O'Connell et al. [15]. This theory is discussed comprehensively in [16]. In the present calculations, the initial and final nuclear states are constructed by using the protonneutron quasiparticle randomphase approximation (pnQRPA, see e.g., [17]).
The nuclearstructure dependence of the nucleus cross sections is contained in the reduced nuclear matrix elements of various onebody operators, which depend on the momentum transfer. With an increasing number of nuclear final states, the calculations of these matrix elements are obviously increasingly time consuming. Therefore, in [18] we introduced a fast method for the calculation of the involved matrix elements, which is based on the barycentric Lagrange interpolation [19]. This method is adopted in this work and it is shown that the obtained results are in very good agreement with exact calculations.
This paper is organized as follows. In Section 2 we outline the theoretical framework for calculations of chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus cross sections. First the pnQRPA is introduced. We then briefly summarize the formalism for computations of chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus scattering off nuclei. Then, in Section 3 we present our results. Finally, in Section 4 we draw the conclusions.
2. Theory
2.1. pnQRPA
In this work, the protonneutron quasiparticle randomphase approximation (pnQRPA) is adopted to construct the nuclear final and initial states. In this section, we therefore briefly summarize the formalism of the pnQRPA. For a more detailed treatment, the reader is referred to [17, 20].
The nuclear Hamiltonian for a general twobody residual interaction can be expressed in the form where the index contains the singleparticle quantum numbers , , and and holds in addition the magnetic quantum number . Here is the particle creation operator and denotes the corresponding particle annihilation operator. In (2.1) are singleparticle energies and the antisymmetric twobody matrix elements are defined as .
The pairing correlations in this work are taken into account by adopting the BCS (BardeenCooperSchrieffer) theory. The starting point in the BCS approach is the variational ansatz for the BCS vacuum where is the HartreeFock vacuum and denotes the timereversed particle annihilation operator, which is defined as where ). The variational parameters and in (2.2) are obtained by solving the BCS equations [17].
The quasiparticles subsequently are defined via the BogoliubovValatin transformation By using this transformation the nuclear Hamiltonian (2.1) can be cast into the form where the term is proportional to a normal ordered product of quasiparticle creation operators and quasiparticle annihilation operators.
In practice, the parameters of the BCS calculation are adjusted to reproduce the experimental pairing gaps for the reference eveneven nucleus under consideration. In this work, the empirical pairing gaps have been deduced from the threepoint formulae (see e.g., [17]) where () is the proton (neutron) separation energy for the nucleus having mass number and proton number .
In the pnQRPA, the states of the oddodd nucleus subsequently are constructed by coupling twoquasiparticle operators to good angular momentum and parity . The state vector corresponding to the excitation then is defined by where denotes the pnQRPA vacuum and the additional quantum number enumerates the states with the same angular momentum and parity. Here the pnQRPA creation operator is given by where the sum runs over all possible protonneutron configurations in the adopted valence space. The pnQRPA equations can then be written in the matrix form [17] where denotes the pnQRPA energy of the phonon . In (2.8) is the wellknown pnQTDA matrix and the matrix contains the induced groundstate correlations. Matrices and contain both a particleparticle and a particlehole channel of the protonneutron twobody interaction. As is customary [11] also in this work the particleparticle and particlehole channels are scaled by phenomenological constants and , respectively. This is done for each multipole separately. For more details on the scaling of the pnQRPA Hamiltonian, see [20, 21]. In the present computations, these parameters are tuned for the multipole only by using experimental observables such as betadecay rates, the energy of the giant GamowTeller resonance, and experimental energies of the lowlying states in the oddodd nucleus under consideration.
2.2. ChargedCurrent NeutrinoNucleus Scattering
In this work, we consider chargedcurrent neutrino and antineutrino scatterings off a nucleus () with mass number and proton number , that is, neutrinoinduced reactions of either the form or for the lepton flavors . The Feynman diagram for the nucleus scattering that proceed, via an exchange of a boson is shown in Figure 1. In the figure , () represents the fourmomentum of the incoming (outgoing), lepton and and are the fourmomenta of the initial and final nuclei. The antineutrino reaction (2.10), which is mediated by a boson, can be obtained via chargeconjugation operation on Figure 1 and therefore is not displayed here.
In this work, we employ conventions that are similar to the ones used in [22]. We consequently define the covariant and contravariant fourvectors as and , respectively, with the metric . We thus write and , where and are the energies and and denote the threemomenta of the incoming and outgoing leptons. The fourmomenta of the initial and final nuclear states take similarly the forms and , respectively.
For lowenergy neutrinos, such as the supernova neutrinos that are considered in this work, the transferred four momentum is small compared to the mass of the gauge boson ( and resp.), that is, . The process in Figure 1 can consequently be treated in lowest order in the coupling constant . The effective Hamiltonian density can then be written for the neutrinoinduced reaction (2.9) in the currentcurrent form where represents the chargedcurrent lepton current and is the hadron current. For chargechanging interactions, the coupling constant is given by where , GeV denotes the Fermi constant, and is the Cabibbo angle. For the antineutrino scattering, the effective Hamiltonian density similarly is given by where and . The nuclear matrix elements for both the considered processes then take the form where and for neutrino (antineutrino) scattering. We have here defined , and . This should be understood such that the appropriate hadron and lepton currents for the process under consideration are combined according to (2.11) and (2.12), respectively. In (2.13) we have moreover introduced the lepton matrix element Here the hadron currents can be decomposed into vector (V) and axialvector (A) pieces according to At the origin , the singlenucleon matrix elements of the currents and are given by where denotes the state vector of a proton (neutron) having the three momentum and spin projection and is the nucleon mass. The corresponding onenucleon matrix elements for the nuclear current are related to the ones of through the charge symmetries [23]
By the conservation of the vector current (CVC), the vector form factors in (2.16) can be written in terms of the proton and neutron electromagnetic form factors and as (see e.g., [23]) In the present work, we use the electromagnetic form factors of [22]. The axialvector form factor in (2.16) is assumed to be of dipole form with the quenched static value . Moreover, the pseudoscalar form factor in (2.16) is obtained from the GoldbergerTreiman relation (see e.g., [16]) where [5] represents the mass of the charged pion.
We assume in this work that the final and initial nuclear states have welldefined angular momenta and and parities and , respectively. The doubledifferential cross section for the chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus scattering with transition from an initial nuclear state to a final nuclear state can then be written in the form (see e.g., [24]) where Here the excitation energy of the final nuclear state is defined with respect to the initial nuclear state, that is, . In the above expressions, we have introduced where the magnitude of the threemomentum transfer is given by and denotes the rest mass of the outgoing lepton. In (2.20), the function , where is the proton number of the final nucleus, takes into account the distortion of the outgoing lepton wave function due to the interaction with the (final) nucleus and the + (−) sign is used in the case of neutrinos (antineutrinos). Furthermore, in (2.22) the minus sign is used for neutrinos and the plus sign for antineutrinos.
For the treatment of finalstate interactions, we use the method introduced by Engel in [25]. Consequently, we define the effective momentum of the outgoing lepton within the nucleus as where the effective energy is given by Here is the value at the origin of the Coulomb potential produced by the final nucleus. In this work, we approximate the Coulomb field with that of a uniformly charged sphere and therefore where for leptons and for antileptons and denotes the nuclear radius. In the region where is small, that is, , one can, just as in betadecay calculations, adopt a Fermi function of the form [26] where For larger values of the energy of the final lepton, we employ in the present work the socalled modified effective momentum approximation (EMA) introduced in [25]. In this approximation, the absolute value of the three momentum and the energy of the outgoing lepton are replaced by the effective values given by (2.25) and (2.26), respectively. The effective energy and momentum are also used in the calculation of the threemomentum transfer defined by (2.24).
Guided by [10, 25], we adopt in the present calculations for the neutrino interaction (2.9) the Coulomb treatment which, gives the smallest cross section. For the antineutrino reaction (2.10), the finalstate interactions decrease the cross section. Therefore, we choose in this case the Coulomb treatment (Fermi function or modified EMA), which gives the largest cross section.
3. Results and Discussion
In this section, we adopt the formalism presented in Section 2 to compute the cross sections for the chargedcurrent neutrino and antineutrino scatterings off the eveneven molybdenum isotopes.
The initial and final nuclear states are first constructed by using the pnQRPA (protonneutron quasiparticle randomphase approximation) discussed in Section 2.1. In the calculations, the singleparticle energies were generated by using the Coulombcorrected WoodsSaxon potential with the parameters of [27]. For the nucleus, some of the singleparticle energies close to the respective Fermi surfaces were then adjusted according to [28].
We employ the formalism discussed in Section 2.2 to calculate the doubledifferential cross sections (2.20) for all the final nuclear states separately. The total cross section as a function of the energy of the impinging neutrino then is computed by integrating over the scattering angle and adding up all the individual contributions coming from the final states. For the calculations of the involved nuclear matrix elements, we use the efficient method introduced in [18]. For more details, we refer to [29, 30].
In Table 1, we show our calculated cross sections for the chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus scattering off the even molybdenum isotopes as functions of the energy of the incoming neutrino. In the table, the cross sections are tabulated for a large set of neutrino energies which, are relevant for supernova neutrinos, that is, . The results for the antineutrinoinduced reactions are similarly shown in Table 2. As is seen in the tables, both the neutrino and antineutrino cross sections increase strongly with increasing neutrino energy. We can also conclude that the neutrino cross sections increase significantly with increasing neutron number . For low energies of the incoming neutrino, the cross sections are dominated by GamowTellerlike transitions mediated by the operator and Fermilike ones, which proceed via the operator . At zero momentum transfer (), these operators reduce to the usual GamowTeller and Fermi () operators. It is well known that the GamowTeller operator obeys the Ikeda sum rule [31] where () is the total GamowTeller strength for the () channel. The nuclei in this work have large neutron excess and hence the branch is small and therefore . Similarly, for the transitions to final states one has that . Furthermore, the energy threshold, , is decreasing from MeV () to MeV (). This explains the increase of the neutrino cross sections with increasing neutron number at low neutrino energies. Contrary to this, the antineutrino cross sections decrease with increasing . This is explained by the fact that the values are increasing significantly with increasing neutron number.


In the last column of Table 1, we compare our results for with those of [10]. It is seen in the table that our results agree well with the ones published in the aforementioned reference. Our computed neutrino cross sections for are also in qualitative agreement with the results displayed in Figure 1 of [14].
As already mentioned above, we use in the present calculations the method of barycentric Lagrange interpolation for the computations of the required nuclear matrix elements. Therefore, in Figure 2 we compare the cross sections computed with this method with exact calculations in the case of the neutrino scattering off . The results for the antineutrino reaction are similarly shown in Figure 3. It is seen in the figures that the results computed by the approximate method (based on numerical interpolation) are accurate to 45 significant digits. Consequently, the numerical errors are very small compared to the errors coming from, for example, uncertainties in the nuclear wave functions. The results for the other isotopes are similar and are thus not shown here.
From the experimental pointofview, an interesting quantity is the fluxaveraged cross section , which is obtained by folding the cross sections with an appropriate energy profile of the incoming neutrinos. In this work, we adopt a twoparameter FermiDirac distribution where denotes the effective neutrino temperature and is the socalled pinching parameter. Here the constant normalizes the total flux to unity.
Because of interactions with the matter, the neutrinos undergo flavor conversions when they propagate through the star (see e.g., [32]). Consequently, the energy profiles of the neutrinos (or antineutrinos) which arrive at the Earthbound detector are different from the initial ones. For simplicity, we assume in this work that the oscillations occur in the outer layers of the star. Furthermore, we neglect collective neutrinoneutrino interactions. The neutrino profiles for the neutrinos, which reach the detector can then be written in the forms [32] for neutrinos and antineutrinos, respectively. Here () is the energy profile of electron neutrinos (nonelectron neutrinos) and correspondingly for the antineutrinos. We also point out that due to the large rest masses of the muon and tau (and their antiparticles), only supernova and can be detected by chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus scattering.
In Table 3 are shown the computed averaged cross sections for the supernova and induced scatterings off . In the table, () represents nonoscillating electron neutrinos (electron antineutrinos). We moreover denote with () and () the oscillating electron neutrinos (electron antineutrinos) for the normal and inverted hierarchies, respectively. According to (3.3) (see (3.4)), these neutrinos have energy profiles that are altered with respect to the initial ones by the flavor conversions . Here results are shown for the two sets of neutrino parameters shown in Table 4. Averaged cross sections for other energy profiles of the incoming neutrinos (antineutrinos) can be easily computed by using the original cross sections tabulated in Table 1 (Table 2). We conclude from Table 3 that the flavor transformations significantly increase the averaged cross sections both for neutrinos and antineutrinos. The antineutrino cross sections are also much smaller than the corresponding ones for neutrinos. This is explained by the large neutron excess for () since then the antineutrinoinduced reactions are suppressed because of Pauli blocking. In the table, we also compare our results with the ones of [33] for the parameter set II of Table 4. The numbers computed in the aforementioned reference have here been transformed to take into account the oscillation effect (3.3) with the updated value of [34] adopted in the present calculations. The discrepancy between the two calculations for is about 16% and for the flavor converted neutrinos in the normal hierarchy the results are almost exactly the same. Here it should be noted that in the aforementioned reference the measured , , and strength distributions of [35] were adopted instead of those calculated by the use of the pnQRPA. We therefore conclude that the results are in very good agreement with each other despite the rather different methods used in the calculations.


The proposed MOON detector can be realized by either using enriched or natural molybdenum [33, 36]. Consequently, accurate estimates of the nuclear responses for all the stable molybdenum isotopes are important. Therefore, we show in Table 5 our calculated averaged cross sections for all the stable eveneven () Mo nuclei. It is seen in the table that the values of the neutrino cross sections are increasing significantly with increasing neutron number, while for the antineutrino reaction (2.10) the trend is opposite. We also conclude again that the cross sections for the neutrino scattering are notably larger than the ones for the antineutrino channel. Computations of the cross sections of the chargedcurrent neutrinonucleus scattering off the odd isotopes, and , are still in progress and the results will be published elsewhere.

4. Conclusions
In this work, we have computed the cross sections for the chargedcurrent neutrino and antineutrino scatterings off the stable molybdenum isotopes for neutrino energies, which are relevant for supernova neutrinos. In the calculations, the initial and final nuclear states have been constructed by using the pnQRPA. We have tabulated the cross sections for an extensive set of neutrino energies. The nuclear responses for the aforementioned nuclei have subsequently been calculated by using a twoparameter FermiDirac distribution. However, averaged cross sections for other energy profiles of the incoming neutrino (or antineutrino) can be easily computed by using the cross sections given in this paper.
Our results for the neutrinonucleus scattering off agree well with previously published results. We have found for the studied chain of nuclei that the neutrinoscattering cross sections increase significantly with the neutron number . Contrary to this, the cross sections for the antineutrino scattering decrease notably with increasing neutron number.
